Space Suit of the Week
hungryjoe: Actually, I’d guess that he’s sitting on one of the plain vanilla GSA steel chairs rather than the fancy aluminum Emeco chairs, which were really for shipboard rather than office use.
Reminds me of Zladko Zlad
It looks like the original Major Matt Mason.
I wonder if he has wires inside his limbs.
Paint it orange and it’d easily pass for the Tintin ‘Explorers on the moon’ spacesuit.
You call that a disco spacesuit? Now these are disco spacesuits!
This reminds me quite a bit of the suits from the movie “Moon Zero Two”.
(Which, if you’ve ever seen, you can’t help singing.)
The red highlights would probably make him a Dirty Commie Ruskie though.
Of course the sound track has to be:
Looks like he’s frowning. Why are you frowning!? YOU’RE IN A SPACESUIT.
He’s trying to push a dump through that long white hose.
Disco spacesuit, huh? Let’s see him do the hustle in that thing.
That’s actually a photo of my father, and he always looks that way (even today at 74)! That was quite a suit in it’s day, but then again, so were Angel Flights.
He’s sitting on an Emeco chair. Those things are freaking EVERYWHERE! That chair Lists for $795 today (new). They weren’t even cool back then…
